Scripts aren't executed in vacuum. And the question is not limited to SHELL

Why? I don't need no friggin xterm, I need to run a script.
Is this a hard concept to grasp?

Simple as what?
I don't understand, what "two" you have and what you are actually doing.

I don't know the name, I have a script that I want to run. Here. Now. Why
can't I just click it?
